“Great Hotel - Recommending to Friends”
Reviewed 17 May 2009

Given the fantastic rate we received (booked through an airline who booked through Expedia who actually booked the hotel) and the location, we were expecting a dive. Completely the opposite. A well-run, clean hotel with ENORMOUS rooms (by my naive Canadian standards.) The hotel is quiet at the tomb between rooms. Yes, we were on the 57th street side and the traffic noise wouldn't let you sleep in but why would you want to when you're so close to everything. Subway stations at both corners - we used the F line to get downtown but walked south on 7th or Broadway to most theatres.

I can't begin to say enough good things about this place. It made my first ever trip to New York a joy.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the hotel. This hotel is all about the location. Only 5 mins walk from the Park and about 10 mins from Times Square and the Theatre District. One downside to the hotel was that our room was badly in need of re decoration. There chips out of doors, scratches on the inside of the bathroom door (looked like someone had tried to claw their way out from the inside!). Our floor was very hot. 11th Floor. Air con constantly on, but very noisy! We were on the front of the hotel and yes it is noisy, but what do you expect this is NYC after all! The beds were very comfy and a lovely flat screen TV in the room, and 2 big walk in wardrobes. Had breakfast twice. Great value for $4. Had breakfast at the Health Bar and the Stage Deli other days. Both very nice. Rue 57 is a nice place to eat which is just on the corner of W57th and 6th Ave. Staff in the hotel very pleasent - in particular the porters. They called us a car to take us the airport. I think they used Dial 7 - would highly recommend. Overall a fab stay in NYC, and when I come back - which I hope to one day - i would stay at the Salisbury purely for the location. Hopefully it will have been redecorated by then!

..beware of the noise! I you happen to be in the street side of the building, you better bring some effective noise protection. Otherwise, this hotel is very well located and all services are good.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel as I have heard awful stories about new york hotels. We stayed there during november, weather was freezing but the hotel had brilliant radiators and we were never cold in the room. Our bedroom was really spacious and had two double beds instead of the one that we were expecting. The bathroom was a little old and could have done with being updated.I found the breakfasts were very good but my boyfriend wasn't impressed. They were cheap and a little plain but you'd be guaranteed to find something you could eat. Location was excellent for pretty much everything, right beside subway station and most sights were well within walking distance. The one drawback was a lack of nice restaurants or bars in the area and there was no real nightlife in the area.However the area was very peaceful and safe

I had a five night stay at the Salisbury whilst having a round of meetings in New York. While the hotel is a little run down, the accommodation is excellent, and my room was very large with a great view over 57th Street.

Staff ranged from indifferent to very friendly, but were always courteous. Some have complained about the slow elevator. While it is slow and rather clunky, I never found it to be a great problem.

Aside from the rooms, the greatest thing about this hotel is its location. Just two blocks south of Central Park and Columbus Circle, and a stone's throw away from two subway stations that will take almost anywhere you need to go. It's about a ten minute walk to Times Square, and one of the best parts of the trip was the nightly stroll to and from the city's hub.

The Salisbury is right in the heart of the Theatre District, so is ideal if you're going to a show. Its lack of a restaurant or bar is compensated for by the wealth of places within a couple of blocks. I went to Cafe Europa on the corner of 57th and 7th most mornings for breakfast, and Trattoria Del Arte is across the street from that - it was recommended to me by a New York native, and it was terrifice - great if you're travelling alone as you can eat at the bar, and the staff are super friendly.

We stayed in a suite for a week in April. It was fantastic, if you appreciate old and can handle the average showers. The rooms were massive and the price was to die for. You really can't beat the salisbury's location - we felt like we could get anywhere we wanted easily. It is right near the subway and in walking distance to so much. We adore "old" so relished in the old windows, door frames, door knobs etc. If you like flash you may struggle with the bathrooms but to be honest if you are looking for something with a good price you can't go past this place. We had outstanding service from the minute we walked in the door, contrary to some other reviews on this site. Oh - and one other thing - there are some reviews here recommending you don't stay at the front of the building because of the noise from 57th street. I would say, don't let the noise put you off! We were on floor 7 at the front and just adored having the street view - in spite of the noise. We really felt part of the city! If the sound of traffic means you'll lie awake though I guess reconsider. All I'm saying is that the view at the front is brill - we adored watching busy New Yorkers bustle to and from work! Enjoy.
Oh, ps - there are a zillion great places to eat around the area too. Just look at menupages.com, or ask the front desk.
